Help Needed For CANSA Volunteers  

Can you help?

Breast Cancer Screening can Save Lives

Breast and cervical cancer have been identified as a national priority with increasing incidences occurring and CANSA urges women to go for annual health check-ups and screening to detect cancer early.

Lung Cancer Awareness Video – CANSA MLCCP Partnership with University of KZN

CANSA is concerned about the low awareness of lung cancer. More than two-thirds of patients are diagnosed at a late stage, when the cancer has already spread to other parts of the body.

This concern led to a partnership with the University of KwaZulu-Natal for a Multinational Lung Cancer Control Programme (UKZN-MLCCP)…
